Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has been giving his thoughts on rugby league to two of the game's top administrators.

Hearn and his father Barry were urged to become involved in the 13-man rugby code following the departure of both Rugby Football League chief executive Nigel Wood and Super League executive director Roger Draper.

Ralph Rimmer, who is the RFL's interim chief executive, told a media briefing in January he would be happy to talk to the Matchroom Sport duo and - along with marketing executive Mark Foster - met Eddie Hearn at a scheduled meeting at a London hotel.

The get-together was described as "a good, lengthy meeting" but it is not thought any decisions were taken.

Rimmer, who stepped up from the role of chief operating officer, has announced he is a candidate to succeed Wood on a permanent basis.
